I feel so much sadness for you and am in a similar position. One thing I have accepted is that grief is something that is completely different from any other emotion – sadness, anger, confusion. It stands alone as its’ own experience and can overwhelm you just when you might have had a ‘good’ day or two. I read somewhere that grief when coupled with trauma can result in ‘complicated grief’. COVID-19 was traumatic for everyone, let alone those of us who had our loved ones dying and we were unable to be with them. I hope in time we can both accept that life can be OK without those we have lost. Try to stay optimistic – I know I find it very hard to do that, but I also know my sister would want me to be OK so I try for her.
